Up to 3 FEET of Snow? In Hawaii??

Mauna Loa and its sister peak of Mauna Kea are both volcanos.

The National Weather Service said: "Heavier downpours and thunderstorms could cause streams to quickly overflow their banks, leading to flash flooding".

While snow on this part of the Big Island of Hawaii is not uncommon and usually occurs a handful of times per year, the amount of snow is unusual.

Currently, one disturbance that pounded the Big Island with heavy rainfall is moving off to the north. Freezing fog will reduce visibility to as low as a quarter of a mile.

Mauna Loa, considered the largest volcano on the planet and only 120 feet shorter than Mauna Kea, could also accumulate snow at its summit.

PARTS of the sunny USA state of Hawaii have been hit by a thick blanket of snow over the past few days. The heavy snow, drifting snow, strong winds and freezing fog will make for risky travel via vehicle or foot.

The Mauna Kea Access Road is closed to the public at the Visitor Information Station at the 9,200 elevation, and road crews will resume their attempt to clear the road on Sunday morning, ranger say.

"Mauna Kea is a National Science Reserve and is not maintained as a ski area".
